Why do I need a real estate agent?
This is a question I hear from people trying to sell their home every day. Studies show that home sellers who use a real estate agent to represent them generally get a better price than those who sell their home themselves. That is because agents stay up to date on critical processes, and can keep your home sale to the letter of the law.
I can help you get your home sold at the best price possible, in the right time frame, by marketing your home locally and online, and by making myself available to interested buyers whenever they call.
Working with a real estate agent also adds objectivity to the inherently emotional transaction that is selling your home.
It’s important to have your home in good showing condition before buyers start going through it. Here are some steps to take:
When potential buyers visit your home, either find something to do away from your home for a couple hours, or make yourself as inconspicuous as possible.
Have fresh flowers in the entryway. It makes for a friendly introduction into your home.
If offers are made that don’t match your hoped-for price, don’t reject them offhand. Pay attention to your agent’s advice.
Consider dropping the price if several months go by with few or no offers, but if you and your agent have priced your home properly from the start, this shouldn’t be necessary.
Don’t get discouraged. In buyer’s markets, homes can take time to sell.
